With both the temperature and the leaves falling, there’s no doubt that it’s autumn, and this means that the holidays will soon be upon us! While this is a time of festivities and celebration, it’s also a time to get together and lend a hand to those in need. That’s why since 2014, Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk has partnered up with other local Honda dealers for The Honda Against Hunger Food & Fund Drive. The Food & Fund Drive benefits the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, an organization that works with other local agencies to find innovative solutions to the problem of hunger among Rhode Islanders.
Thanks to our wonderful staff, vendors, and customers, last year’s Food & Fund Drive was a massive success: together with other local Honda dealers, we raised over 1,600 pounds of nonperishable food items to help our neighbors in need. Honda Laura once again made the trip to deliver the goods to the RI Community Food Bank. In case you missed it, here’s the video!
“We’ve been so fortunate these past two years to have had success with our food drive,” said Scott Birtles, General Manager of Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk and President of the Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts Honda Dealers. “Our hope this year is to once again harness the spirit of giving that thrives during the holiday season, and be able to provide our neighbors with the food they need to sustain them through the difficult winter months. We look forward to helping the Rhode Island Community Food Bank again this year thanks to the generosity of our community.”
So how can you help out with the Drive? Well, we couldn’t have done it without your help in the past, and we sure can’t now! From now until December 12th, just stop into Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk with your canned and nonperishable goods, or make a monetary donation. We are so grateful to all of you for your generosity, and hope you’ll make donating to this fantastic cause part of your yearly family tradition.
